DON’T MISS: “Yellowstone” – Kevin Costner takes on his first regular series role in this a big-budget, 10-episode contemporary Western. The epic saga chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), a billionaire who controls the largest cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders and open wounds, the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation and America’s first national park. (9 p.m. Wednesday, Paramount Network).

Other bets:

SUNDAY: The latest must-see offering from “Masterpiece” is “Man in an Orange Suit.” With a cast led by Vanessa Redgrave, it tells two love stories – 60 years apart – that are linked by family ties, sexual identity and a mysterious painting. (8 p.m., KSPS; 9 p.m., KCDT).

SUNDAY: Season 4 of “The Affair” finds Noah, Helen, Alison and Cole in their own orbits, alienated from each other and involved in new relationships. But can these broken people ever be happy? Don’t count on it. (9 p.m., Showtime).

MONDAY: Tiffany Haddish is our hilarious host for the MTV Movie & TV Awards, the annual celebration of the actors, stories and moments that drove pop-culture the past year. Not surprisingly, the blockbuster “Black Panther” leads the field with seven nominations. (9 p.m., MTV).

MONDAY: Brace yourself for another very weird dating show. Each episode of “The Proposal” features 10 eligible men or women competing in four pageant-style rounds to win the heart of a mystery person whose identity is concealed from them. (10 p.m., ABC).

TUESDAY: For their latest TV series, producers Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil drew their inspiration from their real-life relationship.

WEDNESDAY: It’s time to get your last helping of “Young & Hungry” as the Emily Osment-led comedy launches its final season. But fans can take solace in the fact that a “Young & Hungry” TV movie is in the works. (8 p.m., Freeform).

THURSDAY: Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian return to prime time in “Take Two.” It follows an actress who starred on a hit TV cop show until a very public meltdown landed her in rehab. She’s now attempting to restart her career by shadowing a dour private investigator. (10 p.m., ABC).

FRIDAY: As Season 2 of “Marvel’s Luke Cage” begins, our title hero has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. Unfortunately, his increased visibility could make him a target of a formidable new foe. (Netflix).
